Posting on behalf of Amrita...


6 eggs, seperated
2 oz cocoa powder (valrhona or any top grade stuff)
6 oz self raising flour
250g salted butter
7 1/2 oz sugar
1/8 tsp salt
1 tbsp chocolate liquor


Preheat oven to 180.

Whisk butter and sugar till ilght and fluffy. Once creamed, Add in egg yolks 1 at a time, whisking after each addition. Add in liquor.Sieve in flour, cocoa powder and salt. Mix well.

Finally, whisk egg whites in another clean bowl till light and fluffy. Fold them into the chocolate batter. Bake in a lined 13x9 inch or 10x10 inch cake tin for around 20 - 30 mins.

Check at the 20 min mark, of even before that if you suspect that the cake has cooked. This really depends on your oven. My oven bakes this cake really quickly, but my grandaunt's doesn't.

Once done, remove from oven and let the cake cool for 10 min in the tin. Flip over onto a cooling rack and let cool completely.

**if you want a sinfully moist center (which everyone competes for, by the way), underbake it slightly.

Thanks for the recipe Amrita. I made them into cuppies instead. Replaced brandy with rum and sugar with molasses sugar.

I just baked these and it was wonderfully soft and fluffy. Thanks Amrita!!!

Just a hiccup, I have problem folding in the whites into the chocolate batter as mine was really thick. However, it is very delicious. My little one ate two at one go.
